SF 4, McKenzie 1
Tied 1-all at halftime, Devilette soccer coach Mixon Moore took a page out of softball mentor Curt Lee’s playbook.
After the team reached the sideline for a halftime talk, Moore instructed his charges to run 10 laps around the goal for what he believed was play that fell short of their skill level.
The tactic must have worked as Desiray Sturgeon exploded for a hat trick (three goals) in the second half to account for the difference.
Kayla Lindsey had SF’s only first half goal.
Westview 2, OC 1
The Lady Chargers scored first and last on Tuesday to escape Troy with a triumph.
Lady Rebel Paige Hicks accounted for the lone local score with her goal sandwiched between the two Westview goals.
Goalie Taylor Baker made 15 saves for Obion Central (5-2-1).
